What is the sound of one man clapping?
This is a well done example of stop motion type editing. I love the pause while there is some background noise. I was left flat by the ending. I thought it might be going somewhere and I was ready for the ride. However I jumped off as the effects got in the way of the 'story'

While it remains an aesthetic exercise in editing, this film calls up overtones of auditorium approvals and cultural yes-men that inevitably revolves around the relation of one lonely clap to a crowd of clapping, even if only in one person.
The only thing I miss is an ending that would prod me to into believing that this is more than an aesthetic experiment.
